Contents Introduction -- Minimum requirements -- Purchaser-specified requirements -- UNECE code for purchaser requirements for ovine meat -- Carcasses and cuts descriptions
Summary The publication offers internationally agreed specifications written in a consistent, detailed and accurate manner using anatomical names to identify cutting lines. Comprehensive color photographs and diagrams are included to facilitate practical application of the standard. The standard also defines a product code allowing all relevant information to be combined in a 20-digit string. The standardization of the trading language is the foundation which allows the meat industry to adopt modern data transfer methods and streamline the flow of information and product throughout the supply chain.--Publisher's description
